Salt Flats – WHY STAY IN A HOTEL. ENJOY A LOFT STYLE APARTMENT

In the heart of downtown Cape Charles, a modern loft style apartment with all the comforts of a 4 star hotel suite! The best part is this property is DOG FRIENDLY!

Upon entering, you’ll see the amazing job the owners did in designing the space. The living room, dining room and kitchen flow into one another without being the least bit crowded. A must have screened in porch was added this year.  The window in the kitchen can be opened as a pass thru so you may enjoy an outdoor meal or simply drinks at the end of the day.

The Master Bedroom offers a King size bed and vanity area. The Master Bathroom with an enormous walk in shower, separate water closet and oversized walk in closet lies just off the bedroom.

As a bonus, there is a multi purpose room. The vintage work desk is large enough to spread out a laptop and files (if you must bring work with you). The laundry area is also located here for your convenience. In looking at the photo’s, this does not look like a laundry room. Again, the owners have put quite a lot of thought into the design.

The property offers plenty of parking. If you have a boat or motor home, there is room enough for both! A public boat ramp is available at the town harbor with direct access to the Chesapeake Bay.

Cape Charles is conveniently located at the southern most point on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. There are a number of restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, unique shops, bait and tackle, library, pharmacy, doctor’s office, hardware store. Food stores and additional restaurants are a 2 mile trip to the highway. 

If you want to explore more of the area, Cape Charles is poised for day trips to Chincoteague to see the wild ponies and ocean, Williamsburg and Busch Gardens to name a few.
